That's really cool. That's certainly the oldest piece of music I've ever heard. Only one question: where's the intense climax?

I marched to this song every Wednesday afternoon for 4 years at Annapolis.

It never rained on Wednesdays............

Yeah! It's amazingly clear sounding, considering how old it is. Just goes to show the Dead's influences are deep and wide. Why no climax? In those days, the songs couldn't go over 3 and a half minutes. Maybe it was different live, where the Jug Stompers could 'Jam'? ;-)

The Cannon Jug Stompers have a few numbers on the Anthology of American Folk Music compiled by Harry Smith in the late 40s or early fifties.That's a wonderful font of roots music, seminal blues country and gospel.I was lucky it was a christmas gift a few years back its eight CDs.But its worth checking out maybe they have it at the library.

Thanks, UU! Those Jug Stompers were sure a valuable resource to the Early Dead, it seems. Here's another 'encore', my favorite Viola Lee:
